Minnesota, 1987. Car salesman Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) is burdened with a massive debt he is desperate to clear. Coming up with what is evidently his best plan, he decides to hire two men from Fargo (Steve Buscemi and Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wealthy wife and split with them the ransom his father-in-law would pay to have her back. Yet, what started as a “no-rough-stuff” type of deal can only go terribly wrong, of course.
Inspired by true criminal offences that occurred across the States (don’t believe the opening titles, though, most of it is fiction!), the Coen brothers produced and directed a successful dark comedy turned cult classic, which in fact inspired last year’s FX mini-series of the same name, starring Martin Freeman and Billy Bob Thornton.
